Part of the hugely successful ‘Margin in’ series of events, Margin in Mobile provides the most effective platform for vendors to showcase their products and services to ICT resellers offering (or looking to offer) mobile solutions to SME and enterprise end users. If you supply or wish to provide mobile, wireless or IOT solutions, this is the event for you.

IT channels of all types, including service providers, are having to rethink their strategies in the face of rising and changing threats to their customers. They are looking for guidance on how to keep customers informed, advice on how to build alliances and form partnerships and on using marketing to open up new security business, as well as keeping updated with technologies.
Security is a fast-developing discipline, but the players range from traditional resellers putting a toe in the water of service provision to those born-in-the-cloud suppliers and specialist builders of security practices. Many of the themes and ideas are new and worth exploring by all types of partner. While some channels are looking for a particular solution to address key vertical market compliance models, others would like to join an eco-system with like-minded partners keen to develop in partnership with others.
This event will offer a forum for developing understanding – from the changing nature of the threat and identifying new opportunities, to building a sound business model, it will also cover specialist legal advice, training and education, understanding risk, exploring new technology areas such as IoT and AI, application, edge and end-point security, and the wider issues of negotiating security sales and implications for customers.

The Managed Services Summit North has been designed to build on the success of its flagship sister summit in London which is firmly established as the leading managed services event for the UK IT channel.

The awards open for entries in May and culminate with the announcement of winners at a dinner following the UK Managed Services Summit in London.
The current climate is creating previously unimaginable pressures on businesses of all kinds and creating an environment in which managed services will have to be delivered much more effectively. Customers are under pressure to do more with less, and so their services suppliers must be as well. Skilled resources are in limited supply even as the squeeze on demand and an ever-wider range of solution calls for greater efforts from the industry. On top of this, fundamental changes in working practices and a surge in cyber-crime is raising issues for the entire customer base and MSPs themselves are targets. How to square this circle, increase efficiency and both develop deliver more value using smarter solutions, better tools, marketing and communications is the primary focus of this special event at probably the most significant time in the history of managed services.
